What? The penalty for burgling is death? And without due process? What king of fucked up view of "a polite society" do you have, anyway?
If you're stupid enough to burgle someone without checking to make sure that they're heavily armed?
HELL THE FUCK YEAH!
The gene pool has enough idiocy floating to the top already. We don't need any more. And getting shot to death is a fairly effective chlorination technique.
It's the same order of stupidity as some drunk dumbass trying to be Evel Knievel and spattering himself all over every available local surface.
